 Because r.mask doesn't have any options with "gisprompt: new,..." (the
 output map name is hard-coded as "MASK", so there isn't any suitable

 In C modules, you can force --o to be documented by setting the
 "overwrite" field of the GModule structure before calling G_parser(), but
 there isn't any way to do this for scripts (it would require an
 enhancement to g.parser).
